My dad passed away suddenly in July after slowly declining for about a year. He had a specific request that we were unable to fulfill in time and we are trying to make that right. I have a very quick stop to make in Tokyo where I can get these items, but I need recommendations on hotels and the best department stores. [more inside]

We'll be in Tokyo between December 27-January 2 at the tail end of our honeymoon, right in the middle of the New Year holidays. Help us add a ryokan stay and onsen relaxation to our itinerary! [more inside]

We're going on our honeymoon and staying at JW Marriott and a Ritz Carlton in Oahu and Tokyo, respectively.
Since it's our honeymoon, I'm wondering what sorts of 'gratis' services can we attempt to ask for before we arrive? These are things like having them call for hard-to-get restaurants to welcome gifts, to notes thanking us for coming. Wrinkle-- I'm using points (i.e. these are free) but have top Marriott Status (which doesn't get me anywhere at Ritz, I know).
1. Does anyone have any experience in this regard?
2. I booked online, how can I request/let them know regarding this? E-mail? Call? Who?
3.Bonus question: does anyone have any suggested Tokyo spots we can/should ask for help getting in?

Earlier ask.mefi recommendations are booked solid. Bonus: Ideas for us to spend the time in Tokyo (or alternatives)? [more inside]

I am going to a conference at the Four Seasons Hotel at Chinzan-so in Tokyo. I can't afford to stay there. Any recommendations of nearby hotels that are cheaper?

I was off to Kyoto by myself to see the cherry blossoms, till a friend decided to come too. Now I've cancelled my single room accommodation and because of the mere weeks to go, we can't get a booking... I need help - google fails me! [more inside]
